I dreaded the idea of being a “YouTuber” for years (Imagine me putting an emphasis on “years“). I told myself I could never be one because I don’t like seeing myself on videos and hearing how I sound when I talk makes me feel really embarrassed, for whatever reason.
Surprisingly, this coronavirus outbreak had somehow “forced” me to come out of my shell. Many of my family and friends from home (and some from other parts of the world) had been asking me about my situation here in China. I’ve responded to their messages, but one day I thought to myself, “If a picture paints a thousand words, then videos can certainly paint a million, maybe more, words.”
So in the midst of this coronavirus outbreak, I made a breakthrough. I’m officially a YouTuber now, haha! My channel’s name is Zhenzhen’s Adventures.
Actually, I’ve uploaded a video of my original Tagalog song composition 3 years ago but eventually forgot about it. It was only recently that I was reminded of it after a friend asked me if I had a YouTube channel and I responded, “No.” Then after a few minutes, I remembered that I actually have one. It’s just inactive.
But now, it’s no longer inactive! Yay!
For now, the main focus of my channel is to upload videos of how my life here in China looks like so that my family and friends can see that I’m okay and that there’s no need for them to worry about me. If God allows my channel to be used for other purposes, I’m open to any possibilities.
Just today I uploaded a video I titled “MY CORONAVIRUS-STRICKEN WINTER BREAK” which shows how my 2020 winter break looks like in connection to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
If you watch my video, you’ll see that we’re okay here and we’re safe but life isn’t really back to NORMAL yet (though normal can look differently for different people).
Therefore, China still needs your prayers. Please continue to pray that this coronavirus outbreak would come to its end soon, hopefully even sooner than what most people expect.
That’s all for now, friends. Thanks for dropping by (and for checking out my channel whenever you can).
A blessed week to all of you!
